Can that number be increased a while after new version, when server load is light?

No. I don't think our server managers will do that. It's an unnecessary change of the server parameters, which they'll need to change every time. A job that will become a unnecessary pain in the ass.

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.

It can't calculate server load and then decide how much concurrent downloads to allow? I am a programmer and that doesn't sound like a hard job.

2 downloads, and 2 downloads it is ;) If you want it nice and easy, use the paid download.

Correct. I have a full-time job and other commitments. I do this on a volunteer basis. I just want the free download to "work" and not have to spend time babysitting it.

It'll stay at 2 concurrent threads as we've determined this is the sweet spot for our servers which manage multiple terabytes of transfer per month. Also, at the end of the day still allows you to grab the mod for free.

If you want it faster, the paid download is less than a price of a Coffee and goes towards serving that download with a small percentage going back to keeping the lights on.

Are all the parts hosted on the same server. It lets me download parts 1 and 7 at the same time but not 1 and 2?

I just tried to access the free download and was told I exceeded the limit, yet I aint downloaded nothing yet lol. Also I paid loads of times for this map in the past, and the 1 time I use the free option I get denied. If possible, could I please get some help resolving this issue as I have done nothing except click to start the first part of the download.
